Works in progress on Instagram

Self-taught artist with a love of story telling.

I've always had a love for stories, but I am terrible at actually writing them, so art has become a way for me to express them to other people.

One day I would love to be at a point where I can show you guys the stories that I've enjoyed dreaming of.

So, my goal at the moment is to progress - to put more time into me. I always love to meet other people along the way and help encourage them while they're on their journey - not just with art.

Haha, very philosophical, I know. But feel free to ask me anything and I'll do my best to help.
Hey everyone, it's been a while!

Thought I would break the silence with a quick update for you. I've been settling into a new job/life routine so not a major amount of time spent on the artwork front. However, that should all be changing very soon! Wanted to take a minute to introduce you guys to a story I've been working on in the background and is still in early days.

Kate P5 Da by Unam-et-solum

I'm sure many of you have already met 'Kate'. Katelyn Lunarae is the main idea behind a personal project called 'Red Moon'. Like I say, still early days but ideas have been going crazy with her character and story so I'll hopefully been showing more in the form of artwork real soon :) You can find quite a few early concepts of Kate, which the first concept was just a quick idea for costume design... So yeah, haha, I guess you can see how my mind works now. I find it fun to think of quick painting ideas to go with, but also build a little bit of a backstory and see how it goes. Turns out I couldn't stop thinking about this one :D

So just to kind of give you guys an idea about her: Twenty something years old, Kate lives with her Father but has no memories or information on her mother. She lives in a world which is very similar to ours, but one which is affected by the relationship between humans and matter. In other words, she is one of a very small part of the Earth's population who can alter the properties of matter. Such as being able to change her hair colour, eye colour, the density and consistency of her clothing - she can literally adapt her look to her needs. But she's no Mystique ;) (Wink)  She can't change the structure of her face or body. But to be able to heat up a bullet in your hands then load it into the chamber of a gun - quite a deadly shot. :) People like Kate in the Red Moon story are considered Dangerous and are normally living low for the most part. But there are people who Hunt those the like Kate, and everything starts to go south on her when her secret becomes exposed.

Trying to be as real as possible with who she is - She's not perfect; she makes mistakes; she has fears. But she is resourceful; caring; clever; she's got style XD Just maybe a bit too Naive.

Oh, it's set in an alternative Victorian Era... La la la la 

Like I say, I'm still working on a lot of the details, but it's very much a thing and I want to keep you guys in on the loop. Who knows - maybe one day this could be a small web-comic series Wink/Razz

Hope everyone is doing well! You guys are the best and I always love to see your work and kind comments. Keep doing what your doing and have fun! Till the next update :D


This was day 30 from a month long 'Drawing a Day' challenge. First self-portrait I've ever looked at doing so a bit weird for me :)

You can see the rest of the month's drawings on my Instagram account:
A practice portrait based on a photo by the great Kelly Smith:

Just a nice fun one to relax and try some different techniques :)
